Mask Wearing Policy Update for clients and staff:
In line with advice from NSW Health earlier this week, the following changes apply to mask wearing for client services.
- Staff and volunteers are required to wear a surgical mask for all client services where social distancing cannot be / is difficult to maintain, specifically this includes transport, shopping, personal care and clinical services
- Staff and volunteers are no longer required to wear a surgical mask when safe social distancing is able to be maintained for example, domestic assistance
- Clients are required to wear a surgical mask for services where social distancing cannot be maintained, for example, transport, personal care. Please continue to discuss individual client circumstances with your line manager if they are unable to wear a mask in these circumstances
- Clients are strongly encouraged to wear a surgical mask when shopping (as social distancing is difficult to maintain), however, it is not required
